BRISTOL — Bristol police on Tuesday, Dec. 10, apprehended a Ferrisburgh man who had escaped from custody.
While responding to the Bristol Town Park to investigate a complaint that someone was furnishing alcohol for a minor, police made contact with Joshua Martell. Police said there was insufficient evidence to detain Martell, 28, for providing alcohol for a minor, but discovered that Martell had an active arrest warrant for escape.
Martell was arrested and lodged in Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility to serve jail time for not completing a court-ordered work crew, police said.
